Royals acquire Luke Weaver from D-backs for Emmanuel Rivera

In a move to strengthen their pitching staff and give them more flexibility ahead of Tuesday’s 5 p.m. CT Trade Deadline, the Royals acquired right-hander Luke Weaver from the D-backs for third baseman Emmanuel Rivera, the club announced on Monday night.

Weaver, who turns 29 this month, has made 12 appearances (one start) for Arizona this season with a 7.71 ERA—a number that ballooned early because of right shoulder inflammation. He missed most of April and all of May dealing with the injury, but over eight appearances in July, he allowed one run on four hits to go with eight strikeouts over eight innings.

Diamondbacks’ young players ‘work in progress’ jumping up from minors

A really nice article about the jump from AAA to MLB.

But the biggest factor might be the information. Major league clubs have staffs dedicated to producing scouting reports for their pitchers to follow, and they are able to identify hitters’ weaknesses and generate plans of attack better than anything hitters have seen in the minors. Combine that information with the talent to execute and hitters are often overwhelmed.

Diamondbacks lock up Ketel Marte to contract extension through 2027, per report

The Arizona Diamondbacks lost 110 games in 2021, but they want former All-Star Ketel Marte to be around when the team returns to contention. The D-Backs have agreed to a contract extension through 2027 with Marte, reports Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic. He’ll earn $76 million and the contract includes a club option for 2028, as well as escalators tied to performance and health.

Marte, 28, is entering the final guaranteed season on the five-year, $24 million extension he signed in March 2018. That contract will pay Marte $8 million in 2022 and includes club options for 2023 ($10 million) and 2024 ($12 million). The new extension guarantees those club option years at slightly different salaries, and includes $51 million in new money.
